About this workshop

Have you ever wondered what happens behind the doors of the secret startup world? Whether you need to talk tech with your IT guys, or express your ideas to a development team, knowing programming basics can help you work more efficiently and effectively. This workshop covers development fundamentals that will help you communicate more clearly, and maybe even code a bit yourself.

Launched in New York in early 2012, Programming for Non-Programmers quickly became one of our most popular offerings, attracting sell-out crowds composed of innovative companies, including AMEX, GE, Pepsi, and Viacom. This exclusive invite to our first San Francisco session — tailored to digital thinkers of the Bay Area — is being extended to a handpicked, select group of local industry leaders.

“For most people on Earth, the digital revolution hasn’t even started yet. Within the next 10 years, all that will change. Let's get the whole world coding!” -Eric Schmidt Executive Chairman, Google
